Skin Deep #164

Catherine, Rufus's mother, was curious about him. He'd always been volatile, like his dad ("may he rot in hell!"), but since his disappearance, Rufus had been odd with her, sort of distant. She hoped he wasn't into drugs or religion, but dismissed both as he appeared to be doing so well at university and was unlikely to be sidetracked by external forces. It was something inside him.

Maybe Rufus was devastated by his father's death and the circumstances surrounding it ("good riddance to the evil bastard!").

And what was this mysterious package?

'Carefully does it, Cat, so he'll never know'...

    Ok, I've just re-read it, hunting for clues. And...
    omg Neville if you're thinking what I'm thinking....I love it.
    And even if you aren't, I know I'm going to love it anyway :)

    Gee thanks for the vote of confidence, Drew! You are so supportive with your comments to me and to others, if you're not in teaching, you could be.
    Not long to wait now Lisa before the Cat's out of the bag, hypothetically speaking!

    Haha thanks Neville. in fact I trained as a teacher when I left school, but didn't want to spend my life going from school to teacher-training then back to school again, so I wandered off elsewhere lol.

    One of my sons did the opposite, Drew. Got to run the HR dept of a national fashion retailer and then chucked it in to become a primary teacher. 2 years in and he loves it. It wouldn't suit me though!
